Whistle Stop


Directed by Alexander Bambach
Germany, 2017


Stupid people run, clever people wait, is written on a cardboard sign under the Wittelsbach Bridge. Behind this piece of everyday wisdom is Bernd, a notorious homeless man with a love for philosophy. Alexander Bambach’s variation on “live and let live” is immensely moving.
